Live At The Apollo Theater, Dusseldorf, Germany, March 18th, 1960
- WLV 82109LP
John Coltrane's album 'Live At The Apollo Theater, Dusseldorf, Germany, March 18th, 1960' is available here on LP.
Recorded by the German WDR radio at the Apollo Theater in Düsseldorf on Monday, March 18, 1960 this session documents a precise step in John Coltrane's career. While on tour in Europe with the Miles Davis Quintet, the young but already mature tenor saxophonist took the chance to lead a quartet session with the Davis rhythm section, a hard-swinging combo with pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist extraordinaire Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb. This is very fine set based on a bunch of well selected standards, among them "On Green Dolphin Street", Miles Davis's "Walkin'", and a deep ballad medley including "Yesterdays", "Autumn Leaves", "What's New", and "Moonlight In Vermont".
